Did you know that Istanbul was historically known as Constantinople?
It was an ancient shipping gateway between Asia and Europe.
To me I still refer to it as Constantinople, even edited the city def to refer to it as such. Most of coastal modern day turkey still belongs to Greece imho. the greeks controlled the coastline from Adana to Trebizond for nearly 1500 years. Them and the serbs are probably the most hard done by countries today, where both of them have had their traditional homelands annexed bit by bit for decades to centuries in regards to the greeks. but yeah, any history book would would tell you this :)
Well calling Istanbul Constantinopole is like calling New York as 'New Amsterdam', Western Australia as 'New Holland' or Beijing as 'Peking'.

History noobs :lol: This man was close to restoring the Byzantine Empire and Constantinople, but you don't even mention him. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferdinand_I_of_Bulgaria

Fun fact: In-game Montana used to be named Ferdinand after him. Could be an easter egg in RttBS merger :mrgreen:

City is called İstanbul and it's historic names are "Constantinople" and "Byzantium". I guess there's not much to say.

It depends on who you're asking. If you ask a greek, he'll say it's called Constantinople (Κωνσταντινούπολη) or the city (πολη) . The same applies to Beijing, if you ask a spaniard, it's Pekin.

It might be fun putting 'Ferdinand' as a city name somewhere in Montana :lol: However I wouldn't say Ferdinand I was close to restore Byzantium by only taking Macedonia and Thracia (and a bit of Dobrudja) :mrgreen:

Beijing is Pequim in portuguese. Constantinople was the city of Constantine (roman emperor).
